Synopsis: Charlaine Harris has topped the bestseller charts and has become a nationwide phenomenon, thanks to the unconventional-and otherworldly- life of Sookie Stackhouse. Now, in her own words, Sookie gives readers a look at her family, friends, enemies, adventures, and-of course-the lovers who set her world on fire...
Readers will: Tour Bon Temps, the small Louisiana town that Sookie calls home, and visit the houses of her Gran and her sometime vampire lover, Bill. Prowl around the werewolf and were-panther communities. Browse through her best friend Tara's dress shop. Belly up to the bar in Merlotte's, where Sookie works. Get must-have Bon Temps recipes-including Caroline Bellfleur's famous chocolate cheesecake. Test themselves with trivia questions from the series.
Review: I was so excited when I found this book on my PX (which never ever has what I want). I can't really review review it because this book is what it says it is, a companion. There is a story in the book though, Small Town Wedding, that brings back one of my favorite characters, Quinn. So...I loved the story, obviously for that reason. I was so happy how that one turned out for him. It's a short story so I can't give much detail, you will have to read it to find out.

There are all kinds of cool things going on in this book though. A short recap of all the books in the series as well as a list of Sookieverse novellas. There is trivia, recipes sent in by readers, FAQ section, and character information. I loved reading all the little tidbits about Sookie's world. If you are in love with the Sookieverse you definitely need to have this book.
